Nowadays, I think I'm becoming obsessed by the term 'healthy'..... but must really get out of it. Not in any other sense but just be particular to have it in a corner of my mind rather than clouding my mind entirely with it. Its good to eat good food... but coining it with the term 'healthy' rather makes it irritating at times.... so I've decided to eat good and keep quiet, as everyone knows whats good for them and whats not.... So turning back to today's recipe.... its the greens stir-fry. I usually get these Asian greens only during the summer season here. Though plucking off the leaves might become the most difficult job as the end of the season approaches, as they start shrinking in size indicating this might be the last bunch you might have for this season!!!! But when you dump them in the kadai, the rustic flavour it emanates pays off for all the time spent plucking!
You will need..........
- A bunch of Asian greens
- 12 garlic pods
- 2 red chillies
- 1 tsp of mustard
- 2 tsp of urad dhal
- Salt to taste
- 1 tsp of oil
De-leaf the greens from their stem. Wash them well under running water. Cut the garlic pods into pieces of your convenience.
Heat a kadai with oil and temper it with mustard, urad dhal and red chillies. Now throw in the garlic pods and saute it for a minute. Then add in the washed greens and wait until they reduce in size. Now add the required salt and switch of the stove once they are done. This goes along well with any curry and rice.
Enjoy this greens stir-fry with warm rice!!!!
